Salmon & Broccoli Tart
  1. For the pastry: crumble together the flour and the butter, rubbing with your fingertips until it is all combined. To bring this together add 2 dsp of water to the mix and start to bring together. See how that goes, it may still be too crumbly so add another dsp of cold water. You may need to repeat this if you do not have the right consistency. The pastry is best when it just starts to come together, it’ll just needs a little bit more work with your hands rather than adding more water and making it sticky.
  2. Wrap the pastry in cling film and chill in the fridge for ½ hour. After this time, roll it out to about 2mm thick and line a 6” tart dish. Prick the bottom with little fork mark and put back in the fridge for a good hour.
  3. Preheat the oven to 180’c
  4. Once the pastry has chilled, line the case with some baking paper and fill with baking beans. Cook for 15 minutes and then remove the beans and the paper and cook for a further 7 minutes
  5. To prepare the filling, steam the salmon and the broccoli for 7 minutes. Flake the salmon into little pieces and chop the broccoli up into mini florets and fill the tart case with these.
  6. In a jug, whisk together the milk, egg, dill and salt and pepper. Pour over the salmon and broccoli and sprinkle the grated cheese over the top.
  7. Bake in the oven for 30 – 35 minutes until golden brown
  8. Leave to stand for 5 minutes before serving with a jacket potato and fresh salad
